south west area



Well what a weekend! Over twenty of us made the trip to Torquay for the annual South West Area convention, staying at the Rainbow hotel as ever. Aside from all the usual SWA antics, we also competed and did very well in a number of competitions which we'd qualified for previously.
  • Brainstrust - well done to Oli Stephen. He got picked for the county team a few weeks ago on his first public speaking competition, and along with three Helston chaps won Brainstrust and are through to the national final!
  • Debating - experienced speaker Jo Maynard was picked for the county team, who also won this event and are also through to national. Good work Jo!
  • Hockey - our team of Kirsty Martin, Jer Blake, Nick Brookham, Tam Bartlett, Ed Humber, Jonny Shute and Steve Butter (plus Claire and Fleur Worden from Lostwithiel YFC), worked hard to get through to the final, but were beaten in the end by Devon YFC, who appeared to have some experienced regular players on the pitch, so well done team.
Although things got lively at times throughtout the weekend, everyone behaved themselves and hopefully the national AGM should go aheard in Torquay as planned. Not that anyone from Launceston is actually going...
